Whats up guys,

If you missed the news last week, it is our pleasure to announce the addition of some awesome catalog titles: Xam'd: Lost Memories and Night Raid 1931!

Every week, 2 new episodes will be released every Friday at 5:00pm PDT; one for free members and all available episodes for premium members in the US and Canada only.

For those that don't know, A-1 Pictures' (Blue Exorcist, Idolm@ster, and Space Brothers) Night Raid 1931 is a historical fiction espionage series, following a group of young Japanese agents working in China in the midst of the events that lead up to World War II.



The year is 1931. The City is Shanghai. Ten years before America will enter World War II; the hydra's teeth planted by the first great global conflict are beginning to germinate, hatching into spiders weaving the complex web of plots and conspiracies destined to inevitably draw entire nations, against their will, to the brink of destruction once more. And caught in the heart of these webs, desperately seeking to separate lies from truth, is "Sakurai Kikan," an ultra-secret intelligence agency staffed by extraordinarily talented individuals with abilities far beyond those of normal humans. Their duty: stop the darkest plots and eliminate the greatest threats.

But in a city built on intrigue, can even a team of clairvoyants, telepaths and espers stand against the ultimate forces of destiny? As the Japanese Imperial Army rolls across China, documented facts and fantasy intermingle in the breathtaking exploration of alternative history that is Night Raid 1931."



While Xam'd: Lost Memories is a Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater) production drawing from diverse inspirations from Gundam and Hayao Miyazaki to Ken Loach and Jean-Luc Godard.

Combining hard-hitting mecha action and fantastic supernatural elements, XAM'D is a thrilling new benchmark in anime. Set on a peaceful island during a violent terrorist attack, a young boy is suddenly transformed into a metal-cased mercenary. But with this great power comes even greater danger. Aiyuki must discover how to master this remarkable new power-or risk having this mysterious fusion of rock, metal and magic destroy him!

Hope you all enjoy them!

I actually bought every episode of X'amd via the Playstation Network when it came out (long time ago) the story is awesome and well worth it, and while it is indeed on Netflix, I've yet to see any anime that actually has the Japanese audio track.

Both of these are in my (physical media) backlog. It's nice to give people more options though.

US and Canada only...I think premium members from other countries should get to pay less, considering we get less for it.
